What are RECs?

RECs are certificates that transfer the “renewable” aspects of renewable energy to the enrolled member-owner. In other words, RECs represent the valuable renewable attributes of wind and solar energy. 

One megawatt-hour produced by a renewable energy source equals one REC.

Where Do RECs Come From?

RECs come from the local wind and solar farms that provide energy to your local Touchstone Energy® Cooperative. A few of these include Crow Lake Wind, The Chamberlain Turbines, Day County Wind Farm and the South Dakota Wind Project. 

Contact your local Touchstone Energy® Cooperative to learn more and enroll.
